Details

The Chaise Tout Bois (1941) is the only chair by French engineer-designer Jean Prouvé that’s made entirely of wood – constructed without a single screw. Building on the iconic shape of his Standard Chair, Prouvé revisited this piece during World War II due to the scarcity of metal. After many iterations, he landed on a design in solid wood that maintained the chair’s structural integrity. Its triangular back legs bear the brunt of the sitter’s weight and tubular front legs handle the rest. The chair’s finely shaped wood seat and backrest conform to the body. Of all Prouvé’s pieces, it remains emblematic of his commitment to balance function with elegance and the needs of society. Made in Italy.

Jean Prouvé

“Never design anything that cannot be made,” Jean Prouvé once said. His practical body of work ranged from letter openers to doorknobs, furniture to modularly constructed buildings. Prouvé always regarded himself as more of an engineer, or “constructor,” than a designer. He never designed for the sake of form alone, concentrating instead on the essence of materials, connections, and production.
